Are you in Need of a Sports Medicine Doctor in Westchester?

Want to Get Back in the Game? Choose Your Treatment Wisely

Any injury should be taken seriously, but for athletes, a sports injury is particularly concerning. To perform well as an athlete, every part of the body has to be functioning optimally. Because of the high-intensity of athletics, even a tiny glitch can lead to serious wear and tear on joints and muscles. This means, that when an injury does occur, athletes require specialized care and treatment. An injury which might be treated more conservatively for an average patient could require more intensive treatment to fully restore an athlete to a competitive level of functioning.

If you are an athlete and in need of treatment, then you should consider a Sports Medicine doctor in Westchester rather than more generalized treatment.

Why Choose a Sports Medicine Orthopaedic Doctor? 

Athlete Focused Treatment
While you might think that any injury will receive the same treatment for all patients, the reality is that many factors must be considered in determining what treatment is best for each individual. A Sports Medicine doctor will consider your:

  • Activity Level

  • Sport(s) Played

  • Health History

  • Future Goals

These are all important factors to consider when determining the best course of treatment. The treatment required for a first-time injury versus a repeat-injury will likely be different. Whether you are a casual athlete or on a long-term professional track will affect the decision as well.

When it comes to treating a sports injury, it is important to be treated by someone who understands the exact circumstances under which the injury occurred and could potentially occur again. Understanding the exact biomechanics of an athlete allows Sports Medicine doctors to make the most precise decisions in treating a condition.

Additionally, while a less active person may be able to obtain a satisfactory recovery for their lifestyle from a more generalized treatment plan, an athlete will likely require a very specific treatment plan in order to return to optimal performance.

Comprehensive Orthopaedic Care
While every patient deserves comprehensive care, athletes in particular require a well-planned course of treatment. It is crucial that athletes receive follow-up care and physical therapy in order to make a full recovery.

If you choose a Sports Medicine doctor in Westchester, then you will receive comprehensive care from a full Sports Medicine team with collaboration between an orthopaedic surgeon, non-surgical sports specialists, a rehabilitation specialist, athletic trainer, and physical therapist.

This team will work together to ensure that you receive the necessary care from diagnosis through recovery.
